Lyle Coston, Chamberlin Vice President

Lyle Coston 

Vice President — General Manager

Houston, Texas



Lyle’s experience in the construction industry started when he was in college, working for his father in Austin, Texas, installing waterproofing and caulking. After two and a half years in the field, the owner decided to utilize Lyle’s experience to estimate projects. It was during this time he was introduced to Chamberlin and was eventually contacted by a recruiter. He decided to make a trip to Houston to meet with Executive Vice President Art Canales and President/CEO John Kafka.

As he did not have a computer at the time, Lyle brought a hand-written resume to his interview, which Art still holds a copy of after 18 years. Lyle started his career with Chamberlin in 2000 and never looked back.

A Day in the Life:

On any given day, you can find Lyle reviewing estimates and negotiating contract terms and conditions. His position also involves seeking out work opportunities and maintaining and developing client relationships. Furthermore, Lyle supports his great team of Chamberlin employees and does what he can to help them excel. 


“Everything at Chamberlin starts with safety, so we have adopted a safety moment at the start of meetings to keep this on everyone’s mind,” Lyle said. He continued, “Construction is an industry that has its challenges, and it is how we handle those challenges that will propel us to the next level.” 

Outside the Office:

Outside of the office, you can find Lyle spending time with his son, Cole, and his daughter, Kenley. His wife has supported his career path, and he cherishes her encouragement throughout the years. The family enjoys going to the Frio River, bay fishing, live music and getting to spend quality time together.
